A soon to be former UAE resident is breaking down barriers with beats, after taking to the decks as a DJ in Saudi Arabia.

Sabrina Terence, from Germany, who has lived and worked as a DJ in Dubai since 2006, will be moving to the Kingdom on Saturday to embark on a six-month residency at Toki restaurant in Jeddah. She was contacted three months ago by the Chinese fine dining venue and the opportunity was music to her ears.

Terence believes that she is the first woman DJ to perform in public in the country. “When they called I asked them ‘why me?’ and they said they wanted a big change in Jeddah, for the name, for the restaurant, which is why they thought of having a female DJ.”

Terence was one of the first female DJs in Dubai and she is happy to be at the forefront of change in the kingdom.
